For many people working with video is not easy. However with the new Windows program called "Shortcut", sold by Softradar, this program makes it very very simple to do any type of editing with a variety of video formatted files (used across Windows, Linux and Mac) and also includes over 300 special effects you can add to your videos with video templates. It is so simple to use due its interface that a beginner could start make their own movie from Day One. So if you love working with digital video, this is one software program for your Windows PC you have to check out. If this program is backed by Black Magic design support, an Australian company who edits Emmy winning TV shows such as Game of Thrones, for input and configuring how can you go wrong?

This new video editing software sounds like it simplifies the entire video creating process. It would be a very convenient software for anyone just beginning to learn how to do this. However it did not mention the cost, if any. If it is expensive many beginners might not be able to take advantage of it.
I absolutely love uding Shotcut for Windows for all of my movie-making and video editing needs. Shotcut is dynamic, user friendly, and produces quality videos that are compatible across almost all mediums.
The software is good, it describes how is free and you can't be that. Also it being virus free is also a good thing about it.The only down fall to it is that it updates daily which could sometimes be a interrupting issue. Other than that its great!

I was shocked with how amazing this editing software works. I used macbook for years while I was in school so my main editing software was Imovie. I recently bought a windows laptop so no Imovie. Downloaded this and works like a charm. Its easy to learn and just as powerful as Imovie. It should be what Windows uses for editing instead of the built in Movie Maker.
This is great user-friendly video editor that has a clean interface and a lot of tools and options. For an average user, I find it simple to download and that won't take much time to learn. It is an amazing tool for everybody. It can neatly import almost anything supported by mpeg including the 4K videos and image files. The filters are also easy to use, and the tool helps customization in your own way.Highly recommended!!
This Software is free to use and without watermarks Shotcut one of the best video editing application. The speed of an Application is slow compared to others Working on Big Projects, Causes Lagging and Freezing
Shotcut for Windows is a program that you can use to edit any video or encode any media format you throw at it. This is an open-source program which means it's updated on a frequent basis. It's compatible with any audio or video format and even works with any picture or image format, so it supports an incredible range. I love how flexible it is.
I Love how Useful I found this software to edit incoming game streams. The software is free by the way, for those of you hesitant with newer software, this can be a no-go but it IS also open source so it doesn't seem too interested in acting maliciously. It was easy to use, had a great interface but I do feel it could support more video formats. This can be solved by installing the K-Lite codec pack and Boom, ALL good.
You can get really creative with this great new editing software. As someone who loves to edit videos, this software offers animations, intros, and special effects to make your video perfect. It also has quick downloading speeds, to give you more time to edit and make the perfect video. It gives you everything you need in one tab, so you do not have to search for all of the tools that you are looking for. It is super easy to use!
